Texas Intoxication Assault Laws

The punishments for an intoxication assault conviction will drastically increase from a simple DWI/DUI, as the perception is that the injury an intoxicated individual has caused would not have occurred if that person had been sober. The specific penalties imposed upon sentencing will depend upon a variety of factors, including the severity of the injuries caused and the defendant’s past record with regard to drunk driving. Punishment may include:

  • Incarceration for at least 30 days
  • Probation
  • Mandatory alcohol awareness classes
  • Significant fines
  • Community service for up to 600 hours
